June 7, 06: CBC explores multiculturalism's demise

CBC explores multiculturalism's demise in Europe ... in its usual inept manner.

The National, June 6, 06 with Mark Kelly.

First Mark went to England, interviewed Muslim males in the town of Keithley (?), one of whom said he couldn't care less whether he was accepted as or considered British. Mark questioned nothing about that.

He briefly talked with the mayor I believe who tried to explain how her area had changed for the worse since the Pakistanis (Pakis) had come. Mark did not explore what had occurred nor probe deeper.

Then, the non-Muslim community representatives: Mark couldn't find a group of articulate adults to question. Instead, Mark found a group of young (teens or early twenties) men holding cans of beer outdoors -- the effect? Yobos, who were inarticulate to boot ... which they appeared to be. Perfect. Viewers were intended, I assume, to dismiss the views of these young men who would drink beer on the street as not worth probing for reasons such as "Why have you come to feel like this?". Not much reasoned questioning nor explanation there. However, it is a mistake to dismiss the inarticulate who in the end may explode with inchoate rage at what has happened. Even people who are not articulate may be right, in that they sense the problem and its source but cannot explain it well ... but that would not be explored by Mark.

Subsequently, Mark went to Holland where his object must have been to show how intolerant the Dutch are in rejecting multiculturalism.

He talked to a few, including the Dutch MP who brought in a bill, passed now, that bans the burka in public, the burka as a symbol of an in-your-face rejection of Dutch culture and an unwillingness to become Dutch, particularly in attitudes to and treatment of women. His bill may have other ramifications (which I don't remember). The only thing Mark could do was discuss how "multiculturalism" is a Canadian value and how being against it is "racism". Actually, it is not racism; it is ethnocentrism and it is not a Canadian value; it is Liberal propaganda designed to get us to keep quiet while they do as they please ... and import Liberal voters. Many of us have known for ages that as an ideal, multiculturalism leads to division, not cohesion, and is a poor way to build a country, anyway. Race has to do with colour but trot out the "R" word in Canada and it will get you out of just about anything you don't want discussed.

The idea you are to get from Mark's interview with the young beer drinkers? Canada is different and it is "racist" to speak publicly otherwise. He did not explore the idea that the burka is more than simply a piece of cloth; it is a political statement, saying as much as anything else: "I am not part of you. I do not want to fit into your society. I may be here for economic or other reasons but I am never going to integrate or to become one of you." Well, Mark, what now?

Another CBC trip wasted. Mark went with a preconceived notion of the old multiculturalism claptrap. We learned nothing from his trip. Mark is a perfect product of a Liberal/liberal education -- mouthing shibboleths without thought behind it. Your ilk with your very liberal beliefs would be the first to go to the wall if the Islamists succeed here in Canada.

First, Canadians were never asked their opinion of multiculturalism, other than its gradual rise in importance--its dominance in CBC-speak for their Liberals--came as part of what amounts to passing an omnibus bill for MP's to do what they wish, when you give your vote in an election resulting in a majority government. Canadians voted for Liberals for an overwhelming number of years, usually not cognizant of what would gradually occur here as a result. No-one spelled out the ramifications of what was gradually instigated. And so it has gone ... but along the way, no-one really canvassed us. If we voiced any objections we were tarred with the word "racist", the kiss of death to further discussion.

As a result of our stupidity and gullibility in the face of the Liberal juggernaut, undoubtedly helped by Conservatives who didn't want to be tarred with the epithet "racist", and a compliant mainstream media used to and liking the perquisites and access under the Liberals, Canada has become increasingly insecure. Mainstream media such as the CBC do not want multiculturalism and its failures explored. Why, the natives might git uppity! Question their elites, their betters.

NJC ... somewhat exercised, again, to say the least.

Will no-one rid us of the CBC? ... Or at least inject a lively brain?

I thought the Mark Kelley piece was very well done, for a number of reasons.

It had it all, left, right, religeon, tradition, tough looking characters and for good measure Mr.Kelley's use of terms like racist, and intolerant to the faces of these people. But even with all that I think many who saw it would not call the ousted English mayor (forgot the town), or the Dutch MP as being racist.

I think most from the left or right would agree that the Dutch are perhaps the most tolerant people in the world and I feel that they are also ahead of us in terms of being progressive. They are what we have been trying to emulate for years, with regards to social freedoms and individual rights.


If the uber tolerant Dutch have to pass laws like these in their Parliament ,which goes against everything they and WE have been taught is the only way, then there must be some good reason.

This is what I think many who watched the Mark Kelley piece saw.

Excellent post. The only thing you left out was the caste system. This form of social abuse engenders.

Otherwise You give me some hope, there are still sane people left in this Nation.

The way the MSM keeps obscuring all we see or read.

Its A boon & great service that we have Bloggers like you. Who inform & illuminate in an other wise barren media.

In this era of stygian darkness. Individuals such as yourself are the true Patriots.

Keep up the good work. We (the public) all benifit daily from persons like yourself.

Seems young mark must endure the tedium of getting some **interview** time in while having a grand holiday visit on our ticket.

One possible item of salvage may be the Netherlands legislation to ban the burkha.

We could use a law in Canada that prohibits the wearing of a mask or any facial identity cover. This is reasonable on the simple grounds of public security and has nothing to do with religion.

Often during public gatherings, demonstrations or celebrations like Grey Cup, hooligans will hide their face with a kirchief.

If the law would allow the police to promptly detain and identify all masked players there may be far fewer smash and grab crimes committed.

People who hide their identity in public all too often have a dishonest intent. Corner store thieves, kidnappers and the KKK conceal their faces.

Public security video camaras are almost useless when faces are covered. In the spirit of a free and openly fair society a law prohibiting face masks seems reasonable and fair to all. TG

The question I would like the CBC to ask all former federal Liberal immigration ministers is this"why would a religion that preaches hatred" have so many of its followers brought to Canada? Dont we have hate laws? I want to know why Muslims were and are brought here in scores over say Romanians or Sudanese Christians or poor Ecuadorians? What is the attraction of these people who are putting their religion above Canada? Dont the FRench and Dutch examples speak volumes. Why would we go down the same path and endanger our nation just to attempt to perpetuate an agnda that put the survival of the LPC in power ahead of the security of the rest of Canada's people?

multiculturalism is bad because it prevents people from talking about how bad immigration is.

I believe you answered your own question. Did the LPC seek to engineer it's own electorate?
